More than just a Realtor...I am a Real Estate Artist!
Buying or selling a home isn't like any other type of transaction. You can't just look online and order one. It might check off all the requirements, but still not be right. It's about feeling. It's about how you live and where you are in life. It's about timing and it's about comfort - financially, geographically, situationally. I look at the entire picture of who you are and what you do and what resonates with you, and help you navigate the process and find the right fit! There’s a science to it for sure, but I think there’s more. I think finding just the right home—or selling your home for just the right price—is an ART. That’s what I do.

I am a Realtor with an over-the-top work ethic who brings heart, soul, and both sides of my brain to my real estate endeavors. With a bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering from Texas A&M (great for crunching those numbers for a market analysis), a MBA in Marketing from Purdue (great for effectively marketing the homes that I list), and a very strong desire to really get to know my clients and their personal situations, I’m uniquely qualified to handle the many complex facets of buying and selling real estate.
My career began in 1993 in sales of custom robotic systems for the pharmaceutical industry. I then moved to strategic planning for an orthopedic device company. Then, to an inside sales position for custom wafer sorters in the semiconductor industry. At around 3 years at each of these jobs, I got the itch to go do something else. I got my real estate license in 2002 when my company tried to move me to California. I couldn't bear the idea of leaving Austin, so I found a career that allowed me to stay in Austin as long as I want to. And after 16+ years in the business - I still love it and have not felt compelled to move on to something else. I think I found my calling!
I moved a lot growing up, but when I found Austin, I found HOME! I have lived in the Austin area since 1995 - first in Round Rock, then three different locations in the Four Points/Northwest Austin area, and now back to our dream home in Round Rock as empty nesters. Austin has been the perfect place to raise my two kids, who are now in college. I absolutely love Austin, Texas and doubt that I will ever leave. I love to take advantage of the wonderful things Austin has to offer - especially hiking, mountain biking, playing tennis, enjoying the live music (especially the free outdoor concerts), eating at great restaurants, enjoying the lakes, visiting art galleries, and just enjoying the beauty of the Texas hill country! God has truly blessed this part of Texas, and blessed me by allowing me to have such a rewarding and satisfying career in the place I love!
Helping someone buy or sell a home is an ART. I want to get to know you. I want to understand what makes you tick, what excites you, what you need, what you want, and what your priorities are. I want to know you so we can be the best resource for you and help you find the best combination of price and timing when you are selling, and help you find the perfect home to fit your unique set of needs, wants, and priorities when you are buying. I want to be your go-to resource for anything real estate - and this extends WAY beyond the closing date. I want to stay in contact and be your first phone-call when you need a plumber, or an A/C repair guy, or need your windows cleaned. I love referring my clients to great contractors, and I want to hear from you when you get great service from someone so I can continue to refine my list of partners. I am a Real Estate Artist...and I am here to paint a beautiful home buying/selling picture for you!
